; Notes:
; - Data reported within this file do not exceed the limits of
; various paremeters listed in the following section. There
; may be more valid data in the original dataset that requires
; additional work to interpret but was discarded due to the
; limits. In particular we have tried to exclude non-solar
; wind data from these files.
; - We provide the one sigma uncertainty for each parameter
; produced by the non-linear curve fitting analysis either
; directly from the fitting or by propagating uncertainties
; for bulk speeds, flow angles or any other derived parameter.
; - For the non-linear anisotropic proton analysis, a scalar
; thermal speed is produced by determining parallel and
; perpendicular tmperatures, taking the trace,
; Tscalar = (2Tperp + Tpara)/3 and converting the result
; back to a thermal speed. The uncertainties are also
; propagated through
The Y-component of the flow speed vector is aberration-
corrected. The east-west (north-south) flow angle is
positive for flows from east (south) of the sun. (JHK)
